Reckless Driver Speeds Through Red Light, Critically Injuring Woman in a Lyft Car

reckless driving - Lyft car accident New york CityA mother of six children is fighting for her life after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in New York City. The 32-year-old victim was in the back of a Honda Accord driven by a Lyft driver crossing the intersection of Dekalb Avenue and Bedford Avenue with the light in their favor, when a reckless driver speeding down Dekalb Avenue in a Dodge Charger ran the red light and the back of the Lyft car.

The impact of the crash was so severe that the victim was ejected from the Honda which spun around, crashed into another parked car and jumped the curb to finally stop right in the front entrance of a deli. The victim was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The Lyft driver and the Charger driver both suffered minor injuries.

The police identified the Dodge driver as 22-year-old Ryan Ortiz from Middletown, NY. His car was souped-up with vanity plates “SCR3AM” and a wrap-around design from the horror film Scream. Videos on social media from a few hours before the accident, which occurred a little bit after midnight, show the car performing “donuts” in the Kings Plaza Shopping Center parking lot.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
